Whether it be just for the purpose of practice, an extra body pushing Baron and Derek and Monta, I see myself helping this team. I don't have to be on the court to affect the game or affect the team in a positive way.
The last couple of games, we kind of got away from [giving Wayne the ball]. You've got to give him the ball. He does great things down there, which allows open shots for myself, Keith, J.R., and [forward] Christian [ Moody ] underneath.
He was put in a situation where he's had an opportunity to play a lot, and his confidence is growing. I commend him for it. This is a tough league. You've got to be mentally prepared, physically prepared. You have to be tough. He's playing all that for the most part, it seems like.
I'm still here, still getting starts, still getting at-bats, so I feel like I'm one of the options. I'm not sure if they've made their mind up over who's going to be the everyday starter or where I fit in the mix, but I feel like I'm at least somewhere in that equation.
